Why does Goodreads need the READ_CONTACTS permission?
You may choose to use your Android Contacts to find which of your family and friends are already on Goodreads. Your contacts will not be read unless you explicitly choose to do this.
Love this app, it makes it easy to show your friends that kind of books that you like, and your opinion about the books that you have read. Easy to share what books you have read and what you thought about each book. you can also recommend books to your friends and family on there, since both of my sisters and I and I usually like the same types of books we recommend to each other all the time, so therefore I am never without a good book to read, I always have a list waiting for me. Also I have won free books on this website personally, and wrote reviews on those books.
Great Book Recommendations
Goodreads is a networking app geared toward the avid reader. The app is basically a social networking site where you can search for books, read overviews, review books, as well as and read reviews from other users of the app.
Once you download Goodreads you will input your favorite types of books to read (i.e. Art, Classics, Children’s, etc.). Then, the app aggregate a list of books based on your initial preference. If you have read the books on the list, you’ll give it a star rating (1-4) and then the app will recommend more or less related books based on the rating. If you haven’t read the book but it appeals to you , you can click the “read” button and it will place the book on your virtual bookshelf.
